The Play Arts Kai line is the only one that can do this right.
Bandai could do justice to the Thundercats designs, new or old, but not at the price point that most American toy buyers that the show is targeted at are going to be used to. A modified S.H. Figuarts styled approach could be used for the 6" Thundercats line and a S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii styled approach could be used for the 3.75" Thundercats line. However, the average price of SHF figures is just over $30 USD and the average price of S.I.C. KT figures are about $14 USD. Both prices don't include shipping fees.
The main problems with using the Play Arts Kai line is that the figures are quite expensive to with an average price of over $50 USD without shipping fees.
I think that the most plausible alternative to Bandai would be Mattel if they hired the Four Horsemen to handle the figure sculpts and design. Implement a range of figure types similar to how the WWE action figures are divided(Basic for $10-$12 but less articulation and Elite for $18-$20 but superior articulation) so that a variety of toy buyers could afford to buy the toys.
